The First Table Read - 12.9.09
Last night 15 actors got into it at SIMPLE STUDIOS NYC and sat in a round of chairs and read painT. After pizza and introductions, it was on. i am sitting there with actors, artists, writers, an opera singer, and one cool accountant, thinking that all the words that were in my head are being held in their hands and coming out their mouth and making the world that was dreamt ALIVE. i did not know how to react to the movie taking place in front of my face. it was insane and beautiful and scary, all at onec. are they feeling this? when THE END was said and i looked around the room, I saw their eyes, and the connection said everything. Everyone shared their feedback which opened up so much and I began writing on pages of anything I could find. The emails and text messages that came later that evening gave me a new confidence in the script, i wish i can share it with van Gogh. I cannot ask for better friends and better colleagues. It hit home. Truth, Hard Work, and Faith, will see this movie off the page, onto the screen, into the hearts, and into forever. THANK YOU BIG TO LEE SEBASTIANY, JOHN TORMEY, KIM MATULOVA, JOANNA BOWZER, JERRY STILIANESSIS, NICK JOB, LARRY SHEA, LAUREN KELSTON, CHRIS GENTILE, ANNA BEILEN, BOBBY HICKS, MEGAN ARDIZONI, PENNI DANIELLE TINSLEY, and BRUCE GREENBERG. I love actors. I love saying things and doing them. I love living. i love painT. the snow came down like stars in the atmosphere. i walked outside of the bar in a tee shirt. I shut my eyes and remembered the moment forever. head tilted back slightly, chill and wet flakes of star on my skin and cool wind in through the nostrils.
